        Subject: Seminar: Network Analysis and Distant Reading on the Perseus Latin Corpus


Digital Classicist London & Institute of Classical Studies Seminar 2014
Friday July 18 at 16:30 in room G34, Senate House, Malet Street, London, 
WC1E 7HU

Thibault Clérice (King'€™s College London)
Clotho: Network Analysis and Distant Reading on the Perseus Latin Corpus

How do we handle Latin texts with digital tools? How do we apply to 
Latin sources technologies and algorithms which have been developed for 
the linguistic study of modern languages? Clotho is a resource which 
aims to address these questions in an Open-Source format, providing 
network analysis, data extraction mechanisms, and document statistics. 
Using these tools, Lasciva Roma, a project of cultural network analysis 
around the lexical field of terms related to sexuality, was launched in 
2014. This seminar will explore and review this project, focusing on how 
the community can use these tools, and how to ensure the tools and the 
data will not be lost.

ALL WELCOME

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

Institute for Internet Culture, Policy, and Law<http://www.icpl.cornell.edu/> (ICPL)

September 17-19, 2014
Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

International connections, digital competencies, copyright, privacy, and social networking are just a few of the cutting-edge issues on the agenda for the 2014 Institute for Internet Culture, Policy, and Law<http://www.icpl.cornell.edu/> (ICPL), the oldest information technology, law, and policy conference in the country. Offered from September 17 to 19 on the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, New York, the institute examines rapidly evolving legal, policy, and social concerns related to Internet culture.

This year's sessions include:
"Global Cornell: International Engagement in the Information Age" with Pulitzer Prize-winner Fredrik Logevall;
"International Internet Governance" with Harvard's Berkman Center director Urs Gasser;
"Aaron Swartz and the MIT Report" and "Blown to Bits: Your Privacy" with MIT visionary Hal Abelson;
"Copyright in a Digital Age" with RISD general counsel Steve McDonald;
"Electronic Surveillance in the Snowden Age" with Cornell Engineering's Steve Wicker;
"Networks, Crowds, and Markets in a Highly Connected World" with MacArthur "Genius" awardee Jon Kleinberg;
"From MOOCs to Cybercollege" with architectural historian Thomas Howe and Oya Rieger, associate university librarian for digital scholarship and preservation services at Cornell; and
"New Information Literacies" with Kornelia Tancheva, director of Cornell's Olin and Uris Libraries.
ICPL is an intimate intellectual environment. There are no concurrent or breakout sessions; speakers, facilitators, organizers, and participants stay together for all sessions and activities. Organizers limit the number of participants to 50, allowing for meaningful, in-depth exploration of topics and the dynamic exchange of ideas and perspectives.

Designed for faculty, university administrators, academic librarians, and IT, legal, policy, and student life professionals, ICPL welcomes individuals from all disciplines who are interested in the culture, law, and politics of the Internet. For the full schedule of ICPL's three knowledge-packed days, see icpl.cornell.edu/schedule http://icpl.cornell.edu/schedule .

An early registration discount is being offered through July 17, 2014. Register now http://www.sce.cornell.edu/ps/icpl/index.php  to reserve your place and special rate.
